About this Tree
Not one tree, but two!
Potentially, that means you can name them both. Double prize? Perhaps, or I may redo this contest separately for the smaller tree at a later time for the additional prize.
This is a lemon tree. Known scientifically as Citrus limon.
I grew it from the seed of a Meyer Lemon purchased from the produce aisle at the grocery store. Will it also be a Meyer lemon? No, seeds always develop random qualities from their parents, although it may retain some of the qualities of a Meyer lemon.
This tree started growing indoors in early Winter of 2017. I grow it outside when the temperatures are warm, then it will be kept indoors again during winter because frost will kill a tropical tree like this.
One of the things I love about citrus trees is that when you pluck off a leaf it emits an intoxicating aroma similar to the fruit. Lemons are a wonderfully refreshing scent. Sometimes we use lemons when cleaning the kitchen sink and counters because it removes grease and repels insects and mold.
This tree will become a future bonsai tree. Next year, I'll consider transferring it to a training pot to further develop stronger spreading roots and a thicker trunk.
The light was dancing on the fence through the tree shadows. A rare vision. Climbing clematis in the foreground.
That's it for today.
Please comment below. I really do need a nickname for this tree.
